I cooked dinner and dessert for my family last night, and I wanted to make a dessert that was simple, and different than what my family usually reaches for after a meal (usually something chocolatey). I decided to take a new spin on my rice crisy treats and use cocoa crispy cereal instead of traditional rice cereal to get our chocolate fix. The recipe is the same as regular rice crispy treats:
- Six cups of rice cereal
- 1/4 cup of butter (half stick)
- A bag of mini marshmallows
I’ve made this recipe with fruity rice cereal as well, and those are just as delicious! This time, I tried to make them with cocoa crispy cereal and it hit the chocolatey spot after dinner!
All you do is melt the butter in a skillet, and once the butter is melted, add all of the mini marshmallows and mix until they are melted. Then you remove the pan from the heat, add the cereal, mix until the cereal is coated, and press them into a pan with waxed paper. Literally, this is the easiest treat to make, and they are delicious!
Don’t they look delicious?! If you’re looking for an easy dessert to make for after dinner, or to bring to a barbeque or party, these are super easy and yummy! Also, they are no bake, so no extra heat from an oven is filling your kitchen during the warmer summer months!
